Onimusha is making a return. In a shocking reveal announcement, Capcom has revealed Onimusha: Warlords for Nintendo Switch, PC, Xbox One, and PS4.

This isn’t a new game but a remaster of the PS2 game that launched in 2001 for the PS2. The game starred samurai Samanosuke and ninja Kade as they attempt to rescue a princess named Yuki from an army of demons. The franchise was one of the most acclaimed series during its era but faded from memory over time. Perhaps if this remaster does well Capcom may decide to launch a new game in the series or possibly a reboot.

Onimusha: Warlords will include:

  • High-Definition Graphics – Update Visuals to take advantage of the PS4 power.
  • Widescreen Support, New Display Options – Both the original game’s display (4:3) and more standard widescreen display (16:9) are supported. Players can shift the ratio in the menu screen.
  • Easy Mode Available From Start – Easy Mode is unlocked for players from the start.
  • Analog Stick Support – In addition to the controls from the original, this new release allows players to move using analog sticks.
  •  New Soundtrack – A brand new soundtrack and voices have been recorded for a modern take.

Onimusha: Warlords will launch on January 15, 2019.
